"The Horizontal Bop" by Bob Seger

Song#:  0389
Date:  11/08/1980
Debut:  90
Peak:  42
Weeks:  12
Genre:  Rock

Pop Bits:  This fourth single from Seger's "Against the Wind" album was not a big hit, but it did gain a reputation due to its suggestive title and became a bit of a bar band staple. After the relatively slower previous singles ("Fire Lake," "Against the Wind," "You'll Accomp'ny Me"), this single finds Seger back on the rock side of his music.

ReduxReview:  This bar jam is not a Seger one I seek out. The wink-wink title and the feeling that I should be tossing beer bottles at a caged band is not really up my alley. It's okay, but there are other Seger rock tunes I'd rather hear.

ReduxRating:  5/10

Trivia:  Seger co-wrote the Eagles hit "Heartache Tonight" from 1979. It would be the group's last song to reach #1 on the chart.
